    • We have implemented thorough sterilization protocols across all our manufacturing and creative center facilities and instituted policies and barriers that limit unnecessary contact with our employees still working at our facilities.
    • We continue to provide designated drop zones for material being shared by our lab technicians and we continue to prioritize creative outlets for virtual communication within the pods.
    • At several of our facilities, there are arrangements to protect our employees that commute on public transportation and at some facilities, we have arranged for dedicated vehicles for transportation of IFF employees.
    • We have implemented return-to-work guidelines as restrictions are lifted and the WHO, CDC and local health organizations deem it acceptable.
  • We continue to evaluate our existing protocols in accordance with the latest recommendations from global health organizations and relevant local authorities to ensure our organization is doing its part to manage the situation.

Commitment to Our Customers

  • We continue to proactively review our resiliency plan to address the COVID-19 developments and are coordinating our response with federal and local health and governmental entities around the world.
  • The policies we have institute across the organization are protecting the health and safety of our team, while minimizing the risk of disruption to our business.

Customer Support

2020年世界杯预选赛赛程 Providing for Our Communities

  • IFF is committed to doing our part for those who are fighting to protect our communities. Even in the midst of increased demand and a challenging operating environment, our teams have mobilized to support frontline healthcare workers and first responders across the global IFF network.

Statement on Supply Chain

  • Given the important and dramatic steps being taken by governments around the world, there remains the possibility that increased actions may affect additional operations globally. We are closely monitoring the situation and will reach out should we expect any disruption in our service to our customers.

Essential Business Designation

  • IFF maintains a unique role in creating critical solutions for some of the world’s most important consumer products manufacturers, including food and beverage as well as vital disinfection and sanitation supplies.
  • We are actively working with authorities around the world to ensure that IFF can operate uninterrupted. We have been operating with an essential designation to manufacture products in many regions across our network.
  • These permissions grant IFF the ability to continue operations with a limited number of employees, while allowing our company to proceed with transportation activities necessary to bring our products to our customers.

2020年世界杯预选赛赛程 Phased Return-To-Work Approach

  • IFF’s return-to-work approach groups our teams into several tiers to promote an orderly and phased return for those who have been working from home. Employees have been placed in a tier that correlates with how necessary and productive it is to perform their role on-site.
  • The RTW approach is guided by three main principles:
    • Ensuring our employees’ safety and well-being;
    • Minimizing risk to our essential workers and business operations; and
    • Maintaining effective collaboration to meet customer expectations.
  • Each IFF site has or will pass through four phases in the re-opening process.
    • In Phases One through Three, IFF additional employees will return to our sites, while working in rotating schedules. Temperature screening is required upon entry, and social distancing is still encouraged. In Phase Three the location can consider additional in-person meetings and potential visitors on site.
    • Phase Four is considered the “new normal”, where no government restrictions remain, and the majority of employees have returned to work.
  • Regardless of a location’s operational and/or occupancy status, protective measures will continue until all virus-related restrictions in its region are lifted.
  • While each location has specific needs and requires a unique timeline, our mandatory site guidelines are meant to establish a critical framework across our IFF network, including complete sanitization of the entire worksite; encouraging employees to bring meals from home to limit travel off-site; wearing masks upon entering and leaving the building and when social distancing is not possible; and temperature screenings of all individuals entering a building, where permitted and appropriate.

Crisis Task Force

  • Our global, regional and local crisis teams are working around-the-clock to do what is best for our people and our business. A core working group, including representatives from human resources, legal, communications, and our business teams, and a larger global working group meets on a frequent, regular basis to ensure alignment from top to bottom across our functional teams. Our Executive Team is directly involved in critical decision making.
  • This team has and will continue putting in place plans and protocols to be sure we are anticipating what is to come and keep all our stakeholders engaged through what could be an extended period of disruption worldwide.

2020年世界杯预选赛赛程 Visitor Policy

  • We are prohibiting or strongly discouraging outside visitors at the majority of our offices and facilities right now. As government restrictions are lifted, we will consider allowing visitors onsite.
  • Each location is instituting specific policies and protocols reflective of the situation in their respective geographies that include restrictions on visitors or adjustments to IFF employee work schedules. Reach out to your IFF contact to understand the restrictions on visitors.
  • All permitted visitors are subject to the same restrictions we have placed on our employees. For example, neither employees nor visitors are permitted into any of our facilities for a quarantine period if they may have been exposed to the virus or feel sick. The visitors must follow the same protocols as our colleagues to help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
